Thank you Homestead
My mother is safe and very well cared for. The staff is very caring. The facility is small and home-like. There is a lot of one on one attention. The backyard is very nice. We are always very welcome when we visit.
We appreciate Homestead!
In January 2014 it was necessary to find a memory care facility for Dad, who had just come under hospice care. Homestead was highly recommended by the an organization which has staff placed in various memory care and assisted living facilities in the Madison area. We did our homework and Homestead definitely turned not just to be the best facility, but the best home for our Dad. We have no regrets.
Homestead staff is loving and competent. They do their work with good humor – they’re fun and funny. The activity coordinator is great with the residents and she schedules live musicians, various groups of young people to come and play and interact with Dad and other residents, and even a KinderMusik class which meets weekly in the family room. It is a wonderful sight to see residents sitting in a big circle around the instructor, the babies and their parents as they all move and respond to music. There are many other activities available and always something happening at Homestead!
The cook prepares healthy, tasty meals and tries to use locally-sourced ingredients when in season. Homestead has a lovely backyard and patio, and just new in the summer of 2016 is an honest-to-goodness vegetable garden planned and installed by the daughter of one of the residents with the support and funding by the owners of the facility.
Homestead is small (16 residents), with a good staff/resident ratio. Families of residents are very involved at Homestead and it has been amazing how we have gotten to know and support each other and their loved ones as well and meet for lunch outside of the facility. Homestead is not inexpensive, but we think it’s a better value than other local top-quality facilities.
Even though we live in Madison, it’s worth driving and we visit Dad daily. We appreciate and thank you, staff and owners, [Removed] and [Removed] !
not clean or staff did not wear gloves when meal preparing.
cook never checks temperature of food-many times my mother was ill.

From the Office
Homestead Living is located in the village of Waunakee, WI. Nearby are health care clinics, dentists, churches and restaurants. Right outside our doors are mature trees and flowers, all at the end of a quiet street. Homestead Living, Inc. has been a family owned and operated facility for the last 25 years.
The purpose of Homestead Living is to provide a caring place for persons with Alzheimer’s or other dementias which has all the elements needed to foster a genuine sense of security and joy; where seniors can live to their full potential, families and friends will want to visit and linger, and caregivers will fulfill the highest calling of their chosen profession. We achieve this purpose by working diligently to discover and meet the physical, mental, emotional and social needs of residents as individuals and by approaching our work truly as teamwork. Homestead's list of amenities includes salon services, at least one registered nurse on site at all times, medication management, and a food service director. Our staff training and staff/resident ratio supports our purpose. Homestead Living is a community of people, rather than a building. You will feel the difference when you visit.
